Nov 29, 2016 · Pacemaker recipients: Looking for support from others in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Thank you for this discussion group. I received a pacemaker last wk. A total surprise for me . As well as being put on Lisinopril for high blood pressure. Prior to that I was trying to control my blood pressure through natural remedies, herbs and vitamins to no avail. After several near fainting and fainting episodes I ended up with a concussion and in the hospital . Since Jan of this yr. 2016 I have lost 72 lbs . and am no longer in the pre diabetic class. Yeah! I did this through a study group focusing on exercise and low fat diet. I am anxious to get back to my exercise programs of zumba, aqua zumba, the gym, and 5K’s. The last 5K that I ran was the day before I collapsed and came in 6th of 19 in my age group(65-70) I would like to resume all these activities . Are any of you involved in this type of exercise and if so how did you feel when you went back to working out? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me …
